Three people face charges in connection with a cocaine investigation in Burlington, North Carolina as Vanessa Johnson and Kendrick Johnson have been arrested and police are still seeking another man: Travis Jeffers.

Burlington police said the investigation began after a confidential source alleged drugs were being sold at both homes. This led to the immediate arrest of Vanessa, age 62, and her son Kendrick, 33, as the police search uncovered quantities of cocaine, crack cocaine and marijuana, as well as a total of $25,000 in cash and a stolen dirt bike.

She was held under a $100,000 bond in the Alamance County Jail.
